Set in 1927, Where the Rivers Flow North tells the story of an old Vermont logger and his Native American mate who face the extinction of their way of life, when the building of a giant hydro dam threatens to flood them off their land. The two face emotional and physical challenges as they struggle with the power company, Vermont’s unforgiving terrain, and each other in this unconventional love story.
